Loving the Lumee
Ask any expert selfie taker what’s most important to posting perfect pictures and you’ll likely hear all about the merits of good lighting.
Unfortunately, professional lighting is seldom available when we’re snapping cellphone photos
especially in dimly lit places like bars and restaurants — which is why the term “selfie” often translates to “unflattering photo.
Until now, that is, and the invention of the LuMee Phone case
Running on an internal battery that works independently from the phone, the case is recharged via a Micro USB (a charging cord is provided)
Depending on how often you use it, the battery can last from two hours at full brightness to 36 hours on the lowest setting —
and for those who are more sparing with their selfies, this timeline should lengthen).
To turn the LuMee on, you simply press a button on the back of the phone case. The lights dim or light up again each time you press and hold the button.
Make no mistake, the lights are bright. The first time I turned on the LuMee, I was almost blinded by the intensity of those tiny LEDs.
Once I adjusted my vision and could look into my phone’s front-facing camera, however, I could instantly tell a difference in how I looked.
At full power, the LuMee cast a nice warm glow on my face — and this was in broad daylight. My skin looked brighter and almost seemed to have a Photoshop-like quality to it. Thinking that was a fluke, I tried the LuMee out in a darkened bathroom (with lights completely off) and was shocked to discover very similar results.
The lights still gave my face a nice glow, and when I snapped a picture in complete darkness, it actually looked good.
Thanks to the LuMee phone case, you can take fabulous selfies anywhere and any time.
Providing much needed lighting in poorly lit spaces and at night, the easy-to-use LuMee casts a perfect glow every time you take a picture.
Even in the daytime, I found that the LuMee softly illuminated my face, producing pictures in which I looked less tired and more vibrant.
Beyond its original photographic purpose, the LuMee makes a great flashlight if you’re searching for something,
and the extra light comes in handy if you use the front-facing camera on your iPhone as a mirror for makeup touch-ups.
As I mentioned earlier, the phone case is bulky, which might take some getting used to,
but if that doesn’t sound like a big deal to you and good selfies are a big priority,
you might consider investing in a LuMee the next time you’re in the market for a new phone case.
Whether you need to put on your makeup and get better lighting, add a little light to your Facetime or Skype sessions,
or take brighter selfies, this product is what you want.
